Dandelion makes "eco-ssentials" for baby: organic cotton rattles, teethers, developmental and plush toys; organic cotton canvas tote bags; organic cotton layette; bamboo rattles, teethers and plush toys; even toddler feeding products made from corn!
Savvy parents are more concerned than ever about what their babies touch and teethe. The Dandelion brand gives you peace of mind, quality materials and processes, and thoughtful, earth-friendly choices.
Creative designs, appealing colours, simple shapes ... a comprehensive line of natural and organic products, specially wrapped in innovative packaging. Each item comes in a custom designed card or sleeve, which “locks” into place using the product’s unique features. No twist ties; no plastics; no cellophane wraps – just 100% recycled paper and vegetable ink. And the packaging sleeve system also reduces the overall size of the package. A smaller package size means less fuel is used for transportation. Less fuel and less waste equals less impact on the environment.
Dandelion ... better for your baby, better for the environment.
